An editor with Belarus’s independent news organization Tut.by said her home was raided on Tuesday, September 8, with her daughter detained in relation to her alleged participation in the ongoing anti-government protests.
Galina Ulasik said the raid targeted her daughter only. “The questions were only about my daughter,” said Ulasik. She told reporters that a number of pieces of equipment, including a laptop, were taken by investigators.
A number of reporters responded to the scene after the news broke of the raid. Video footage shows masked individuals leaving the apartment with a number of items, before departing in a car.
Videos also showed a lawyer attempting to gain access to the apartment during the raid. Credit: Tut.by via Storyful
